Mia woke up to a couple of helium balloons floating in her room. I got them in green and blue, as that was the colour theme of her Lollos birthday party. She loved it - I heard her wake up over the AngeCare monitor, and the first thing she said was "balloon!"
Wyn and I walked into her room singing happy birthday - she was positively beaming!
Then it was present time. What a difference to last year, when she didn't have much of an idea of what was going on... This year, she opened the prezzies all by herself, complete with appropriate sounds like "ooooh, wow!"
Cupcake for breakfast! She blew the candles out, and then asked to "maak vuurtjie" - she wanted to blow them out again! All in all, she blew candles out 14 times on her birthday, plus twice more the next day at her party!
Another cake, for visitors to share with her.
And yet another cake! Oumi couldn't arrive empty-handed! This was a cute miniature one, decorated so prettily.
Mia's birthday party was held at a teagarden, with loads of kiddies entertainment. Everyone had such fun. The venue did the decor in our Lollos theme so nicely, we were super pleased with it all!
Mia adored her fabulous Lollos cake! She spent the first ten minutes of her party sitting there, admiring the cake! This cake was so awesome, it deserves it's own post with more piccies - will share soon! :-)
Birthday girl had so much fun at her party.
Everyone sang happy birthday to her twice - in English and in Afrikaans.
This happy lil face tells everything - she loved it!
So spoilt - a mountain of presents! She spent the weekend opening her prezzies bit by bit - lots of distraction each time she opened a prezzie and wants to play with what's inside! :-)
The end of the Lollos cake! Yum yum.
Mia is a very blessed little girl. She had the kind of birthday every little girl should have! Surrounded by so much love, joy and happiness.
